Roku Ultra Storage

How much storage does the Roku Ultra come with initially before you have to add external storage?? 

Or does it come with any at all?

Per this chart on Wikipedia:

The initial Ultra release in 2016 (model 4640) had 1 GB of channel memory.

All subsequent Ultra models had half that, 512 MB..

Technically you never have to add any storage.  Once the internal storage fills it will just download one channel and replace another as needed.  The microSD card just speeds things up a tiny bit since it doesn't have to download anything.  That's all the external storage does - it doesn't get used for streaming or anything else.

Storage is not memory. Your answer is not relevant.
